Sharing a little trick to shopping on-line at Goodwill

One of my favorite on-line stores- www.shopgoodwill.com ......great finds at a great price...right?  But if you found a cool item like this-

...you know it would cost an arm and leg to ship that beauty right?? making the deal not so special...
Well--did you know you could search by location on their website and if there is a Goodwill location that sells by you - you can just run over and pick up the item...saving shipping cost..... Think about it......
you see items like the one above--(that went for $35.00 on their website-sadly not to me...it was a bit too far to drive to pick up)
or something like this......


or this


at a location close to you....you bid on it..win it and pick it up... for a few bucks....All the items above were for sale on their website and went for less than $40.00!!

So here is how to find out if there is an on-line store near you-
go to the website...www.shopgoodwill.com
on the upper right side of the screen commands click search...
on the 3rd drop down category on that screen click seller and find your state and location....
you can just select that location and hit search and all the items at that store will be shown to you.....This site is a lot like craigslist...hit and miss..So check it often for that special item...unless it is in East Peoria, Illinois....I call dibs on all of those!
Live near Grandville, MI.? Wish I did .....check out these two great pieces up for bid at your Goodwill..
How cute would this be in a nursery???


Or this with a little Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a grain sack seat??


Happy bidding!!
